* "Bold and bright, filled with kid-pleasing riddles and collage illustrations, this is a perfect offering for new readers and storytime. Will these young readers want to create a sequel? Yip! Yip! --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Ever-innovative Ehlert attributes several different words to the family dog...Whether Ralph actually means what he says or not, it’s giggle-worthy; and doubling the fun are Ehlert’s brilliantly composed collages."--The Horn Book, starred review
"What do you do with "groaners," really bad jokes, in this case about dogs? Ehlert has gathered a few and turned them into a colorful, clever picture book.... An excellent selection for sharing one-on-one or reading aloud in a group setting."
--School Library Journal, May 2011
Top Customer Reviews
There are pages that feature only text on a brightly colored background that ask the questions such as "What's your name?" and "How's the path feel on your paws, Ralph?" The following pages are big illustrations of Ralph answering with his Ralph words: Rrralph! and Rough!. The conversational tone and oversize illustrations make this a natural choice as a story time read aloud. Fun stuff and an enthusiastic recommend.
We checked this book out from the library and read it constantly for a month. We returned it and I was so glad to see it slide down that book drop. Then, in the children's section... my clever daughter FOUND ANOTHER COPY!!! So, we read it constantly for a second month in a row. This time, I was sneaky and returned it at the satellite book drop at the grocery store. However, I know just how to delight children AND drive my brother crazy- so my 18mo niece will be getting this for xmas this year!
Our younger children really enjoyed this book so 5* from them :)
You get the idea. This would be a fun read-aloud for a classroom or library group ages 2-6.
Get them laughing, keep them reading. Thanks, Lois Ehlert!
